What is Black, White and Red all over?

Don't know why but this weeks Magnolia Vs. Stampavie challenge had me remembering all of those silly jokes we use to tell as kids... actually it is just a Color Challenge this week, but for some reason... just made me silly...

Well as you can tell the colors for this weeks challenge is Black White and Red. Love this combo, just really don't use it very often. For my card I decided it was the perfect time for a Congrats to a Graduate.

I started with the the Stampavie Leere Aldrich image Graduation Girl isn't she just so smart looking! And I love that she has her little poodle under her arm! As per the challenge I used my Copics and dressed her all in black and Red. To high light her I used Sakura Glaze pens... really pops on the black dress. I cut with my Nestibilities oval, matted with a larger red oval and doodled the edges with the glaze pen.
The base of the card is Bazzil Black card stock, with DCWV pattern paper, white card stock punched with a Martha Steward Double Dot Scallop punch backed with red card stock. It is all stitched down with the glaze pen. I then added a layer of gingham black and white ribbon, and a white Prima flower, and red Micheals bridal flower. The sentiment is from Hero Arts and is punched with a Stampin Up Word Window punch.
I love Color challenges - you really need to check out the Magnolia Vs. Stampavie Challenge Site and check out the other DT's great cards and then give this color challenge a try for yourself!
Hope you have a great Sunday! Can you believe April is so close! Wow....
HUGS and -
